ABOUT SEE ME

The WIP setting for See Me is in Wilmington, North Carolina, America. The male protagonist is Colin Hancock, and the female protagonist is Maria Sanchez.
Maria is a hardworking and intelligent woman from a Mexican immigrant family. She has a Law degree from Duke Law School and currently working at a prestigious law firm in Wilmington. Besides brains, Maria is also a stunning beauty. Like most Mexican women, she has dark hair and perfect visuals. She is an almost perfect woman. Yet, Maria also had a traumatic history of her own. The traumatic history made Maria returned to her hometown and left her questioning so much of what she once believed.
Colin is a not-so-perfect-guy. Colin is hot-headed and always puts himself into trouble. But he is also protective, loving, romantic, and hardworking. Colin is creating a second chance for himself to rebuild his life. And he is giving his second chance the best shot. At the age of 28, Colin went to college again and plans to be a teacher after he graduates.
Colin and Maria met during an unexpected incident. The incident helps them to form a friendship. Later their friendship turns into a relationship. As love unexpectedly takes hold between them, Colin and Maria dare to envision their future together. Later Maria's traumatic past came into their life..............
MY OPINION AND RATING ON SEE ME
As a fan and follower of Nicholas Sparks' novels, I enjoyed reading See Me. To me, See Me is a bit different from Sparks' other novels before. Besides romance and family, See Me also has criminal investigation and suspense elements. The storyline is fast and very exciting. It makes you wanna know who is the real culprit that has been threatening Maria. The suspense elements in this novel make you can't stop reading until the end.
Besides the criminal investigation, suspense elements, and storyline, I also like Colin and Maria's character. Both of them are not perfect people. But their love for each other makes their puzzle complete. Plus, Colin and Maria are very honest with each other. I also like the way Sparks describes Colin and Maria's romance scene in the middle of the novel. The romance scene is very pure and romantic. Nothing erotic about it. Hehehe.
Overall, I rate this novel 9/10. I would also highly recommend this novel to bookworms, romance novel readers, and those who are a fan of Nicholas Sparks.
Ok, that's all my review on See Me by Nicholas Sparks. Before I end this post, let me ask you four questions..........
1) Has anyone read See Me?
2) If yes, what do you think about this novel?
3) Is there anyone of you a fan of Nicholas Sparks' novels too?
4) If yes, what are your top three favorite Nicholas Sparks' novels?
Ok, that's all. Thank you for reading. Take care, stay at home, and pray.
